Description

The Leica VT1000 S vibrating blade microtome is the instrument of choice for high-quality sectioning requirements in neurophysiology, neuropathology experimental pathology), Botany (roots and plants) and Industry (foams).
When sectioning fixed tissue for specific neuropathology tests the Leica VT1000 S consistently provides high-quality sectioning results.

Can alter the frequency and amplitude

To quickly accommodate different application needs, a user can alter the frequency between 0 and 100Hz and select the appropriate amplitude between 0.2 to 1mm in 0.2mm steps.

Fully automated cut mode

Accelerate the sectioning process: the Leica VT1000 S features a high-speed knife return stroke of 5 mm/sec as well as a freely programmable sectioning window which ensures extremely quick sectioning of even the smallest specimens.

Adjustable knife advance speed

The instrument features a very fine adjustable knife advance speed between 0.025 to 2.5mm/s, a programmable sectioning window, and specimen retraction.

High quality sectioning

An adjustable specimen retraction feature protects the specimen from damage during the return stroke of the knife.
